Strawberry Girl begins

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments on ScottLee. I certainly will share a picture of the finished tea tray, but first I have to find the right handles (drawer pulls) and frame. Since these aren't found in the same store, it might pose a bit of a challenge! (By the way, Jane, our mutual friend told me about your request to have the tea tray and her tote bag placed together somewhere from which they might easily be stolen by you. Keep trying!)

I have since moved on to a NEW project! Here is the beginning of Strawberry Girl by Gay Ann Rogers. I'm hoping that once the outlines are done, the worst of the counting will be over!

I'm also trying to finish up the final three stitches in the online notebook class The Sky's the Limit, authored by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson and sponsored by the Shining Needle Society. Once I get this canvas off of my 10" stretcher bars, I can move on to the latest in Jim Wurth's dodecagon series. The kit arrived this week.

As you can see, there's a lot going on here, and that's not even considering the fact that I leave for seminar in just 8 days!

Have you seen our mutual friend's gorgeous Terry Dryden tote bag? If so, you'll help me steal it!

If not, go visit and ask to see it and please give her a hug from me, ok?

You both are very talented stitchers and provoke much stitch envy in my heart. I have a ton of trouble with counted thread designs that you both execute so effortlessly. I guess it takes all kinds of stitchers, though, to make the needle arts stitching world go round.

Thanks for sharing. It'll be fun to watch the Gay Ann Rogers Strawberry Girl come to life.

Hi Jeanne,

The outline is looking just beautiful and that's just the outline! I'm looking forward to seeing this project develop.

You are also going to have to share with us your seminar adventures, especially for those of us who aren't going... :-(
